The Art of True Transformation

True Transformation is Dying.

A metaphysical death, a spiritual death, an Ego death. A lot of people call it the Dark Night of the Soul. Some call it being born anew. Going through being stripped of everything you thought you were, all of the beliefs you believed to be true. You don’t see yourself the same anymore. You don’t see people the same anymore. Heck, maybe you didn’t even notice the people around you BEFORE all of this happened to you, and now that you’ve been Awakened, you truly SEE the people around you for the first time in your life. You see the whole world with fresh new eyes.

As our old selves die, a new version of ourselves emerges and therefore we are reborn. One of the terms for this is Ego Death. Transformation is killing old aspects of ourselves that no longer served us in a positive way, so we can continue to evolve and grow as souls.

To remember our true selves, we’d have to forget our old false sense of self.

I will tell you a little story. When I was younger, I used to dream a lot about snakes. At the time I was going through a lot of emotional times.  I used to fight and argue a lot with my siblings and parents, I often felt misunderstood by everyone. I was losing sleep due to phobias and worst case scenarios. My mind couldn’t shut off with excessive thoughts of what-ifs. Fear and guilt was ruling my life. Snakes was just another thing to be afraid of, I thought. But one night something happened that caused me stop having nightmares about snakes.  I saw a ‘spirit’ of a snake. That’s the only way I could describe it.  I was just going through another restless night. I was lying on my side, and when I turned over,  I saw black eyes staring back at me. A snake. He was about medium-sized, he was grey but sometimes even looked translucent. He was lying only a few inches away from me.  I wasn’t dreaming. I could distinguish between reality and a nightmare,and this wasn’t a dream. But I wasn’t fully awake either. I was in a state of consciousness between sleep and awake. This snake just stared at me, and for a second I felt that pang of fear crawl up in me and I realized I couldn’t move, nor yell for my parents. The fear intensified. But then the moment passed and I realized how calm this snake is. It was so still. We stare at each other for awhile, it could have been a minute, it could have been an hour. I don’t know how long it was, but by the time he disappeared and I gained full control of my body, I wasn’t afraid of snakes anymore.  Of course, I woke up my parents and told them all about the snake. They looked for it, and looked for it but couldn’t find it. They told me ‘It must have been a dream.” But I know what I saw.  Now usually, you’d think that this experience would only cause my fear of snakes to increase, but nope. I actually love snakes now. 🙂 Years fast forward, and now I see that this experience and the dreams was a significant symbol for me. Snakes represent transformation. Renewal, regeneration, rebirth. It even represents healing! After that period of my life ended, a new beginning began and I started working my way out of living life through Fear. Now I try my best to live life through Love. Perfect Love casts out all fear, right?

I told you this story because I believe that by facing our fears head-on, by truly facing ourselves for what we are, and questioning all of the things we allowed ourselves to believe…by actually make the choice to kill or get rid of our old selves that don’t serve us in a positive way, only then will we have truly achieved transformation. Transcendence beyond the Ego. 

We are what we do. When we make the choice to stop doing what our old selves used to do, and begin to do things closer to our true selves,  we begin to grow into a different person.

As a new person, whatever that was keeping us stuck (or oppressed) no longer does anymore. Now, we are free to be our truest self.

Death is a beautiful thing.

Much Love & Light, As Always

Chakras & How To Unblock Them: Part Two

chakra colours

The Heart Chakra is the fourth chakra and it deals with unconditional love in its purest form and connection. The color of this chakra is primarily green but is said to be pink when it’s in the highest form. The element is Air.  

This chakra acts as the bridge between the lower, more physical chakras (root, sacral, and solar plexus), and the higher, more spiritual chakras (throat, third eye, and crown). It is the link between matter and spirit, between heaven and earth. Although all chakras are equally important and the state of each one contributes to one’s well-being and all aspects of life—if there is one chakra that we need to have balanced—it is this chakra. 

If humanity focused on balancing this chakra, there would be no more wars, no more division/separation, no hate, etc…

Also, it’s important to have your heart pure for the afterlife. I’ll elaborate more on this in another post. 

When this chakra is balanced, the person is able to express their love and give their love away—without any conditions or expectations. They realize that their hearts are connected to the hearts of others and that what they do to others,  they also do to themselves. They feel a deep connection to nature and animals.

When this chakra is unbalanced, the person may suffer from feelings of loneliness, isolation, and feel like they’re unloved. They may be afraid of loving someone out of fear of getting hurt, or that they’ll grow too attached. The other spectrum of this unbalanced chakra is when the person is cold-hearted and cruel, they may play with others’ hearts, they may harm others,  animals, and/or planet Earth intentionally, making this chakra shut down.

Ways to unblock this Chakra:

1) Color Therapy (visualizing green, wearing green clothing, etc…)

2) Eating green leafy foods and more organic.

3) Become Love. Give yourself some love. Having self-love that is unconditional is important and must be established first, only then you’ll be able to give love that is unconditional for others. Share your love with others, with animals, with the world, in however way that you share and express your love. It’s good to count your blessings and give gratitude for what you do have. Even appreciating the simple things in life, like being grateful that trees exist or flowers or that you have family and friends.

4) Connecting with nature and animals

5) Affirmations

6) Yoga

chakra colors

The Throat chakra is the fifth chakra and it deals with communication, creativity, and spirit. The color of this chakra is blue. The element is ether.

This chakra is one of the three spiritual chakras.

When this chakra is balanced, the person is able to easily communicate effectively. They have no problem speaking their truth and expressing themselves. Because this chakra is balanced, they are able to let others speak their truth as well, and they will truly listen. They don’t feel the need to control the other person, they can let others just be. They are a good listener,  they might hear the whispers of the divine,  thus communicating with and receiving messages from the Divine/Universe. People with a balanced throat chakra may express themselves creatively through writing, speech, or art.

When this chakra is unbalanced, the person may suffer from not being able to communicate effectively, they are unable to express themselves fully,  either out of fear of rejection or criticism from speaking their honest feelings and opinions. So this person may often try to hide their true feelings and even lie, thus distancing themselves from their higher, authentic selves. The person can either be extremely untalkative and quiet, or really loud and obnoxious, never letting others have their say or opinion, being a bad listener and controlling.

Ways to unblock this chakra:

1) Color therapy (visualizing blue, wearing blue clothing, etc…)

2) Creatively expressing yourself, be it art, writing, or speech.

3) Communicating with others and practicing your listening skills.

4) Realizing what your truth is, believing in your truth, and walking in your truth. Always be authentic and true to yourself.  Being in truth and being real with yourself truly sets you free.

5) Affirmations

6) Yoga

chakra colors

The Third Eye chakra is the sixth chakra and it deals with intuition, the imagination, and spiritual awareness. The color of this chakra is indigo-blue, and the element is Light.

When this chakra is balanced, the person is in tune with their intuition and have no problem following it whenever they feel the need to. This person is also open to new spiritual concepts and ideas. They have clear spiritual vision. They know that everything they experience is the product of their own projected thoughts and emotions. They know that what they see is what they created, and they have the power to use their imagination to create whatever they want for themselves. This chakra also deals with psychic abilities such as clairvoyance, clairaudience, able to see auras, able to see spirits and entities, experience premonitions, etc… Dreaming is also associated with this chakra.

When this chakra is unbalanced, the person falls out of touch with their intuition and becomes spiritually blind. They become close-minded and are not opened to new ideas or spiritual concepts. The person may not be able to make wise decisions and they fall out of alignment with their true soul purpose in life. They might believe in the saying “What you can’t see or touch is not real” and over-intellectualize life,  this is when the person becomes Egotistical. This person might experience difficulties with sleep and rarely remembers their dreams.

Way to unblock this chakra:

1) Color Therapy (visualizing Indigo, wearing Indigo or dark blue, eating purple/indigo-blue foods such as blueberries, etc..)

2) Trusting yourself and your intuition. Believe in yourself, if you have a strong feeling about something, you should trust it. The more you start to trust in yourself,  the more your intuition and ability to make wise decisions grow stronger and stronger.

3) Meditation. Sitting in silence and stilling your mind. Calming down the overthinking mind, and just being in the moment. Listening to your inner voice or the whispers of the Universe. You don’t have to do a whole lot of hours of meditation, just a few minutes a day is great and can work wonders. Some people believe  they don’t have time for meditation, but really they always have time. Everyone has 24 hours in a day, it’s just that they prioritize other things. Jbittersweet has some good, short videos of meditations that I highly recommend.

4) Crystals

5) Aromatherapy

6) Yoga

chakra color

The Crown Chakra is the seventh chakra and it connects you to the Divine and to your Higher-self. This chakra  deals with Spiritual Enlightenment and Connectedness to All Things. The keywords for this chakra is I KNOW and I UNDERSTAND. The color of this chakra is violet, but in the most elevated form the color is white. The element is Cosmic energy.

When this chakra is balanced, the person experiences divine spiritual experiences, they have a strong connection with their Higher selves and the Divine. They work with and trust in the Universe. This person vibrates on a higher frequency and has reached higher consciousness. This person can see things objectively and see lower situations from their higher selves’ perspective. The person knows the distinctions between their true selves and their false sense of self (or bad Ego).

When this chakra is unbalanced or even shut down (as is the common case with most people, unfortunately), they are cut off from the Source (G-d) and their higher-selves. They are spiritually asleep and running on autopilot. They don’t believe there’s anything more to life, no deeper meaning into anything. They will go through life not knowing or remembering what their true soul purpose was in their lifetime. They may fall victim to the bad ways of living in this society and are under Mind Control. They don’t realize that they can have Soul Control that can override bad Mind Control. They make their lives harder than it has to be by working against the Universe and not listening to the advice of their higher selves. They believe that they are separate from everyone and everything and cannot comprehend that they are connected to everything and are a part of the bigger whole.

Way to unblock this chakras:

1 ) Color Therapy (visualizing violet, white, or gold, wearing any of those three colors, etc..

2 )  Trusting in the Divine and the Universe; Asking for guidance from the Divine or your spirit guides, whenever you’re in need of answers/help, trusting that everything works out and is well in your world, believing that everything happens for a reason and that there are no accidents, there is always something good in every situation you just have to look for it)

3 ) Spiritual activity such as prayer or meditation.

4) Meditation and this is extremely important for this chakra and the Third Eye chakra.

5 ) Crystals

6) Aromatherapy

Remember that the chakras are energy vortexes within the energetic body. They are sensitive to the environment. Your thoughts, feelings,  beliefs, and experiences affect them in a fundamental way. So it’s good to avoid anything negative that might lower the frequency of your chakras, thus causing them to spin a slower rate and lower frequency.

This has been part two of Chakras & How To Unblock Them. I hope that this helps with inspiring ideas for chakra balancing.

Chakras & How to Unblock Them: Part One

The first step in knowing how to unblock the chakras is to know what chakras are exactly and to identify which chakra(s) may be blocked, so you can directly target that particular one(s). There are many ways and techniques that people use to unblock, cleanse, and balance their chakras. 

So what are chakras?

Chakras are the Sanskrit word for ‘wheel,’ and these wheels or energy vortices are within the energetic body. They are connected to every aspect of our lives, emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual. There are seven primary chakras, and even though there are hundreds of minor chakras, these seven are most known and focused upon for healing and balancing. By balancing your chakras, you balance your mind, body, and spirit thus balancing your life!

Here is a brief description of each chakra,  so you’ll be able to see how they all relate to one another and are interconnected.

colors of chakra

The Root Chakra is the first chakra and is the base foundation of the chakra system. The color of this chakra is red and the element is earth.

When the Root Chakra is balanced, the person feels safe,  secure and stable. They are grounded and connected to Mother Earth, (the element of this chakra is Earth). The person is secure in who they are and of their identity. They know that they are always provided for by the universe and that they never go without. They are grateful for what they do have.

When this chakra is unbalanced, the person suffers from feeling unsafe and unstable. They feel like the world is not a safe place and they’re always carrying around this fear and anxiety. Their head is always in the clouds and tend to be a bit spacey, they might feel like they aren’t anchored to anything. They may also suffer from health problems.

Ways to unblock and cleanse this Chakra:

1) Color Therapy (visualizing red, wearing red clothing, etc…) 

2) Exercise and healthy eating;

Exercising is good for overall health, but it really helps to move the energy that’s within the body and help it flow more naturally and become un-stagnate. Exercises having to do with the legs is especially beneficial for this root chakra, it emphasizes grounding the energy. After exercising, you’ll feel invigorated and the chi will have circulated all throughout your body, flowing naturally as it should. Plus it will boost your self-esteem and make you feel good about yourself. Remember, once you start and get moving, it’s harder to just stop. 

3) Nature walks

4) Grounding; Taking your shoes off and standing on the grass barefooted, feeling yourself connecting with Mother Earth

5) Affirmations

6) Yoga; There are specific yoga poses for each chakra that are meant to help move the energy or ‘chi’ within the chakras so the energy can flow more naturally.

colours of chakra

The Sacral chakra is the second chakra and it deals with emotions, sexuality, and creativity. The color of this chakra is orange and the element is water. 

When this chakra is balanced, the person accepts and honors their emotions/feelings and are able to express them more freely. They are in touch with their uniqueness and are more accepting of themselves as they are. They have a healthy relationship with their sexuality and healthy boundaries, They are very creative and they live life with passion and feel more joyous. 

When this chakra is unbalanced, the person suffers from being out of touch of their emotions, may actually believe that their emotions are messy things and thus try to repress them for as long as they can. They have creative blocks and may have unhealthy boundaries and relationships. They might not care as much for their physical bodies, thus suffering from unhealthy things like emotional eating, substance abuse, other harmful things for the body, etc…

Ways to unblock and cleanse this Chakra:

1) Color therapy (visualizing orange, wearing orange clothing, etc…)

2) Exercise and healthy eating;

It’s always good to nourish the body, and by nourishing the body you begin nourishing your soul. Eating orange foods can be stimulating to the sacral chakra, drinking water or other beverages are good for this water element chakra)

3) Express Yourself; Dancing, or whatever form of creativity you like doing, as long as you’re expressing yourself creatively and having fun.

4) Letting go; Expressing your emotions, letting go of all the negative emotions that were holding you down, letting go of any guilt you might’ve felt and finally forgive yourself, of course doing all of these things in a healthy way.

5) Affirmations

6) Yoga

chakra colours

The Solar Plexus is the third chakra and it deals with willpower and self-esteem. The color of this chakra is yellow and the element is fire.

When this chakra is balanced, the person loves and accepts themselves as they are and they are confident in their own skin. They have a healthy self-esteem. The person is in touch with their inner power and is able to tackle whatever life throws at them. They can set goals and they believe they can achieve them. They also accept others as they are (which then leads up to the Heart Chakra having the unconditional love for the self and for others).

When this chakra is unbalanced, the person will suffer from either too low a self-esteem or too high a self-esteem. They will be unaccepting of themselves, always placing high demands on oneself which means they’ll also feel this way towards others. They might believe that they are powerless and cannot do what they set their minds to achieve.

Ways to unblock and cleanse this Chakra:

1) Color Therapy (visualizing yellow, wearing yellow clothing, etc…)

2) Exercising and healthy eating (yellow foods like bananas, sunflower seeds, cheese, etc…)

3) Setting Goals; Set realistic, small goals and working towards achieving those goals. When you achieve them, you’ll feel really proud of yourself and more in control of your life. If at first, the goals seem daunting, then break them down into smaller steps and when you do accomplish them, celebrate how powerful and effective you are!

4) Going outside and Sunbathing; Sunshine is really good for the solar plexus (its element being fire and all), and it’s an instant mood improver. 🙂 Just don’t forget sunscreen!

5) Affirmations

6) Yoga

New Consciousness New World

Lightworkers, Indigo Children, Crystal Children, Starseeds, Spiritual Warriors,  Elevated Souls, whatever name that resonates with you, I am calling you in and I want to give you this message.

The Human Consciousness is accelerating at a rapid rate. People are waking up and they are starting to Remember. They’re beginning to remember who they truly are, before all of this. They’re starting to realize that this holographic reality isn’t real, that life is just a dream, an experiment. Just like the Earth’s Schumann Frequency Resonance is increasing, so is our own Consciousness/Frequency is increasing. A New Earth is coming into being and some of us who’s chosen the path of Ascension will match that New Earth’s vibration. All we have to do is stay on our paths of evolving and soul development. One day, the consciousness of the people will become the new world’s technology.

All the things I’ve said above is true, but on the flipside,  some things may look bad right now, and you might be thinking that the world is coming to hell and things have only gotten worse. This may seem true in some places, with some people, but it’s not all over the world. This world is one of Duality, so if things are looking bad, then things are going to become better. The Universe is all about balance, nature always knows how to balance itself. If one end of the spectrum is increasing, then the other opposite end of the spectrum must also increase.  It’s just a matter of time, and it’s happening right now. Remember, the earth’s frequency is increasing!

As long as we continue on our paths and raising our own vibration, we help light up the path of ascension for others, thus inspiring them to raise their own vibration. Our energy can create ripple effects in the collective conscious, much like the butterfly’s wings can have such an effect. We can change the world or even create a new world, with our newly elevated consciousness. This reality is going to shift and a new world is going to be born.

Now people make choices all the time, those choices lead to consequences, good or bad. These choices lead to results or destinations. For example, if someone wanted to get to New York, and have New York as their destination, then they would have the make the choices of packing up their essentials,  getting in a car or boarding an airplane that’ll take them to their desired destination. It’s essentially the same with what kind of world we wish to merge and sync with. Everyone is going to be synced with something, that’s no doubt. Our choices affect what type of energies we draw and attract to ourselves. Our choices affect what we sync with as our destination. Some people choose to see the roses, others pay close attention to the thorns. Some people appreciate and express gratitude for all the good that exists, while others are constantly focused on the horrors, conflict, and tragedies of the world. Some people like light and others prefer the dark. Everyone has their free will, their choice, their preferences. But nobody can infringe upon another’s free will, choice, or preference.

Right now there are many voices out there, trying to get your attention. Some of them will guide you and help you get on the right soul path, while others will misguide and confuse you, leading you astray. With technology advancing, it’s easier and faster to get easy access to all sorts of information. Good information, not so good information. It’s all about whether this piece of knowledge is beneficial to your life and personal development in all areas of your life, or is it just harming you? It can be easier to get sidetracked by getting caught up with the wrong side of the internet (or crowd, online and offline really). There’s so much confusion being spread and what’s worse is how many people are just accepting it. Embracing this madness and pretending like it’s normal. It’s not normal, it’s unnatural. They act like it’s cool, but truly they are lost. So lost, they don’t even know they’re lost. But it’s not entirely hopeless because this is all going to wrap up and be wiped clean, just like it’s always been in the past. And remember, there are others who are still in touch with their inner nature, their true selves. These people are the ones who stand by the Eternal Truth and spread it, preach it, practice it, and walk in it, even when it’s not popular, even when it’s not fully appreciated, even when it’s criticized, even when it’s hated by some. These people have as much strength to be able to give truth as the person to receive it.  I’m going to try my best to be a voice that helps reminds others who they truly are. I’ll help spread the truth that heals.

Pure Love is in our True Eternal Essence. ❤ Ignite the inner light within, and shine. Your Light makes the world a brighter place! Your Love makes the world a lovelier place. Remember Love Heals, so every time you radiate love energy, you are healing something or someone. Even if it’s just for a moment or the healing lasts for a day, or even years. Imagine if everyone radiated this loving, healing energy? Oh, what a wonderful world that would be! There would no sickness, weakness, illness or disease.  Because those things are vibrating on a very much different frequency,  that Love doesn’t vibrate on. Simply put, be the Love you want to see in the world. ❤

Much Love and Light, As Always

~Tiffany
